1. i’m really tired of our toilet breaking all the time. this is like the 3rd time at least. we’ve been here less than a month. most of the time it just keeps running, because the chain comes unhooked. but this time it wouldn’t flush at all. so i had to rehook the stupid chain. i don’t appreciate having to stick my hand in the toilet…arg.
2. why is it that everytime i come home from my tues/thurs class and want to take a nap, they’re pounding and doing more construction on my house?
3. GOOD NEWS!!!!!!!!!! DECEMBER 4TH DECEMBER 4TH NINE INCH NAILS FRAGILITY TOUR CD AND DVD! FINALLY!!!!!! how long have we been waiting for this?!?!?!? I NEED A DVD PLAYER! (and a vcr since mine is dead)….!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
omgomg so excited about the NIN dvd…just watched the trailer! ahhh i can’t wait. it’s been too long since we got new nin stuff. and so what if i dont have a dvd player, i have the fight club dvd, still haven’t watched it LOL. i’ll go to joe’s house, he’s got play station 2. i’ll force him to lemme watch it. ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh excited.
i’ve decided that i don’t really like band whores…i don’t mean like people who are really sleeping with the band…i could give a shit about what you do with band members…and i know you could say i’m a bit band whore myself, but i’m totally not. band whore, to me, is a person who’s live revolves around bands and shit, with the mistaken notion that they give a rats ass about you. i’m not deluded enough to believe that the econoline guys (for example) care about me in the slightest, no matter how many times i hang out with them…call me a realist :P.
i’m also not talking about anyone in particular here…just in general. i don’t even know what brought this on (ok i lie, i do know what brought this on, but i don’t feel like sharing to the world). there was this girl i met, i forget her name…she’s krista’s friend (krista is eric’s friend)…she was like 14, and every band we talked about she’s like, oh, i know them.. blah blah..no wait, she didn’t say she knew them, she said “i’m FRIENDS with them”…sorry hun but i hardly think any adult band member gives a shit about some little 14 year old that they might have met a few times….she’s not the reason i thought of this, but she’s a prime example. yeah. ima stop now.
i also think that i’m over my 1.5-2 year “must see every concert” phase…i mean, i love concerts still, and i still “need” to go to them… but it’s not like it used to be. example…family values tour is coming to buffalo. stone temple pilots are headlining. am i going? no. did i even think about going? no. i just don’t care about it. i don’t want to be on the floor, smooshed with a bunch of 15 year olds, and getting kicked in the head. i also don’t want seats in the back of the friggen arena. i’m so over sacrificing myself for concerts.
of course there are exceptions. i want to see U2 and Tool. still no word on a buffalo Tool date. both of those shows i will pay for, and i will sacrifice myself for U2 (not tool). and of course, there are the givens of NIN, Orgy, APC….and there are a few bands i want to see that I haven’t yet… but other than that, yeah, i’m over it.
from a very outdated u2 FAQ….some funny things

This section is devoted to weird rumors from the usenet and other sources that turn out to have a grain of truth to them.
Q: Is it true that Bono likes to have his chest shaved ?
Well, Bono has had his chest shaved once that I know of:
Bono has an irregular heartbeat. He had to have an exam for his insurance company. He had too much chest hair for the doctor to be able to hear his heartbeat so they shaved part of it off. I looked up irregular heartbeat – it is caused by stress, anger, smoking, too much caffeine in coffee or tea. It is not fatal and it’s ok to have one.
Whether or not Bono enjoyed having his chest shaved is unknown at this time.
Q: I heard that Bono stripped in the middle of a crowded restaurant.
This is true. From Newsday March 27, 1992: At a dinner earlier this week at London’s celebrity haunt, Nikita, Bono surprised his 18 dinner guests by removing all his clothes – including his black bikini briefs – for no apparent reason. During the Russian meal of mainly vodka and caviar, we’re told the Irish rocker sat naked and acted as if being nude in a plush, crowded restaurant was the most natural thing in the world. Which, in some quarters, we suppose it is. “Sometimes people drink vodka and do strange things,” Nikita owner Sylvain Borsi told us. But didn’t he find Bono’s behavior a bit eccentric, to say the least? “No, he was very nice and very civilized,” Borsi said. “I think he just felt more comfortable with nothing on.” But he had a really good reason! From Newsday March 30, 1992 : His spokesman says Bono was actually being interviewed by a journalist during dinner when the Irish rocker decided to undress, as we reported. “The writer was so unimaginative, so frozen, so unloose that Bono thought it would be a good idea to take his clothes off,” the spokesman said. “And there wasn’t much of a reaction.”
